Enjoying the fall colors and friends

November 16, 2019

We started our trip south with a mission conference in Seattle. Seattle Missions Fest is always a highlight for us and usually is the first place we stop on our way south. This year it was held at Crossroads Community Church. Many missions are invited to have booths and share what they are doing around the world. There are seminars and main speakers too. In our off time, we were able to chat with many friends. Some dear friends were there with their adult daughters that we have known for years. That was so good to see them again! While in Seattle we also got to attend our former church. It was great to reconnect there as well.

Then we drove to Portland for several days. Kent was able to spend a day at Multnomah University talking to students about serving the Lord overseas. I had a special day to hang out with another dear friend, Rachel. It was near our birthdays which are one day apart and we just had a wonderful time!


But each day we had great trips. We drove over the mountains in Oregon. Then our temps dropped to even 14 overnight. But we were fine and enjoyed the beautiful fall colors along the way. We drove through a corner of California, far from any of the fires!

We then took each day to go a bit further south and east to reach Phoenix before my birthday. I enjoy the traveling but wanted to be settled before my birthday, it was a big one…65, and I was having some difficulty in getting used to the idea of being 65. We did make it in time day was celebrated and I am getting used to the idea!

Thanks for anyone who prayed for us as we traveled! We do not take your prayers nor God’s protection for granted, but appreciate it greatly! We are going to be in Phoenix for 2 months and then we are not sure where. Stay tuned for the next adventure!

A video of some of the sights we saw as we traveled. We started out in rain but as we went along we enjoyed the colors and then mountains and even the early morning fog!

God bless,
